Hacking is a word that all government people are wary of and this is the word that is most used by the hackers around the world. These hackers are very happy to be on the computer and use the resources on the internet to get into the computer network of all other people, especially the government computer networks, defense networks and various other networks.
The hackers get into the networks of all the other governments and the organizations because this helps them to gain some money from it either directly or indirectly. They gain money directly because they are able to hack into the account of other peoples bank account and get money from the account. They gain from the hacking indirectly because they may be paid some money by various other organizations to get them data from the systems and networks of various other governments.
